Who is Robert Segal?
Robert Segal is a professional entertainer based in Boca Raton, Florida who has been entertaining audiences of all ages for over 40 years. You’ve seen magicians before but you have never experienced Robert Segal.
Robert Segal helps corporations and private organizations make their events unforgettable and amazingly fun with unique programs consisting of interactive magic, mentalism, comedy, and audience participation.
His interest in magic began at the age of 10 and has gone on to become one of the leading Magicians in the South Florida area.
Since 1980, Robert Segal has been entertaining audiences on cruise ships and around the country.
He has helped companies and private party planners make their events a smashing success!
Whether he is turning a borrowed $1 bill into a $100 bill, predicting what people will think of in their minds, vanishing a signed bill and making it impossibly reappear inside an orange, Robert Segal’s goal is to make you look good by presenting unique entertainment everyone will enjoy and remember forever!
Two Different Styles of Magic To Make Your Event Unforgettable!
1. WALK AROUND MAGIC
One of the important factors in creating a really special event is to make sure that your guests start having fun right away…minutes after they arrive. You’ll be delighted as you hear the gasps of amazement and laughter as your guests are entertained with their own 5 to 7 minute shows which include super fun magic that happens in their own hands. This enchanting, fun, and intimate form of “walk around” entertainment is perfect for cocktail parties or as pre-dinner entertainment. It will leave the lasting impression you desire.
2. STAGE COMEDY MAGIC SHOW
The "After Dinner Show” is a 45 minute stage show that includes baffling demonstrations of magic, illusion, comedy, mentalism, and audience interaction.
Your guests will be thoroughly entertained and delighted as they witness Robert Segal's G-Rated show. Robert features "mini miracles" like making a birdcage vanish from his fingertips in the blink of an eye, to causing a borrowed and signed bill vanish and reappear impossibly inside an orange right before your very eyes!
Robert also features some seemingly impossible mentalism and mind reading feats that will leave you and your guests astonished and entertained.

Is Robert Segal able to entertain people who don't speak English?
Thankfully, magic is very universally appealing to all walks of life! Although your non-english speaking guests may not totally understand every funny joke Robert makes, they’ll still be thoroughly entertained and amazed by what they see!
What kind of room set up do you need for the stage show?
Typically having the stage setup against a wall having all of your guests seated in front and as close as possible (this helps provide a more intimate feeling). Guests that are seated directly to either side of the stage or behind, have TERRIBLE seats and therefore it’s best to avoid that. A space that can comfortably seat all of your guests without having them on the sides or behind the stage is best. Also watch out for those huge annoying beams right in the middle of some rooms. Please take into consideration your guests so they don’t get stuck behind one of them and miss out on the fun. See the example room diagram below.
Does Robert perform outside of the South Florida area?
Yes, even though Robert is based in Boca Raton, FL he travels to all parts of Florida as well as the continental United States.
What do we need to provide you on our end?
What is needed varies based on the type of entertainment being provided. If you go with a strolling/close up magic package, where Robert is merely strolling through your event and entertaining the guests, there are virtually no additional requirements. Everything Robert needs he comes prepared with in his pockets ready to entertain when he arrives at the event.
For the stage show packages, there are some important requirements that are needed in order for a successful performance.
1. If Robert is the only performer with equipment on the stage (besides a podium), then we recommend a stage at least 12′ x 8′ and at least 6 inches off the floor. Depending on how high the stage is, stairs might also be required as there is fun audience participation throughout the performance. In cases where Robert’s equipment would be sharing the stage with other performer(s), a larger stage may be necessary or other special considerations.
2. In most cases, Robert will provide his own sound system unless it’s a performance that requires air travel. In this case, we’ll also need a professional sound system setup and monitor throughout the performance. The best type of mic is a headset mic known as a “country man”. It is wireless and hands free. We also need an an input for an iPod for sound effects. Once again, most of the time Robert provides his own professional sound system. Please keep in mind that you still may have AV needs yourself and still may want to ask your venue to provide a microphone to show a presentation, announce winners, give speeches, etc.
3. With regard to lighting, we have no specific needs but do recommend not having your event too dark because it becomes more difficult for your guests to experience the amazing magic when they are struggling to see what’s happening. It's always a nice touch to have general stage lighting with the audience seated in a darker area if the circumstances permit.
What forms of payment do you accept
We accept Zelle, Venmo, Checks, Major Credit Cards, and PayPal. You may pay securely online using PayPal. If paying with check, please make check payable to “Robert Segal Magic“.
Is Robert able to entertain while people are eating?
Technically yes but we really don’t recommend it. By the nature of the entertainment, your guests participate in the magic and are often asked to help out. This is sometimes difficult when people are eating. And also it’s hard to “watch closely” when you’re enjoying dinner. This applies to all packages, strolling and stage shows.
Will this embarrass or offend anyone?
We’re proud to say that absolutely NO ONE is embarrassed in any way. We’ve heard many horror stories of how other entertainers have completely offended guests in the audience with off color jokes and remarks. Robert Segal’s entertainment is completely G-Rated and never relies on entertaining people by making fun or laughing at people. “We’re not laughing at you, we’re laughing with you…”
What size audiences can Robert entertain?
Robert’s entertainment is best suited for small to medium size crowds. Robert entertains groups as intimate as 10 people all the way up to 500 guests in a ballroom. If you have a large group (200 or more), the use of projection
screens makes the show even more enjoyable for your guests. Talk to your venue or contact a local audio/video company with questions to further explore that option.
